Find Something!

green-technology-2Going green is a common topic now-a-days. More and more, people are looking for ways to “go green” and save money by doing so. There are all sorts of technologies out there that help people become more eco-friendly. One thing that is on most everyone’s mind around this time of year is how to save money and energy on heating. Heating your home can be very costly, both financially and environmentally. So how can you help lessen the burden? A new technology that has become increasingly more common in recent years can help with that; the programmable thermostat.

A programmable thermostat is a thermostat that allows you to set different temperatures at different times of the day without having to worry about changing it. You can set the specific temperature  for certain times and certain days. This allows you to keep the house warm when you are there, but lower the temperature when you leave. It is said that in the winter, lowering your temperature 10 degrees, 8 hours a day can save from 5 to 15% off your energy bill.

This thermostat allows you to be cost and energy efficient while you stay warm. Even if you set your thermostat to 75 while you home then drop it to 65 while you are not home, you can still save a lot of money. However, who is really going to remember to turn the thermostat down every day before leaving for work? Not many. That is where the genius of the programmable thermostat comes in.  You can program it to drop the temperature on weekdays when you know you will not  be home and never have to remember to do it yourself.
